Mint farmers in India produce 80% of the world’s supply of mint and rely on the crop to provide household liquidity. Declining soil health, increasing cost of production, and the degrading quality of inputs has decreased productivity and reduced farmer incomes. In Uttar Pradesh, women mint farmers face a variety of socio-economic challenges, such as gender inequality, food insecurity, and financial illiteracy, which have been exacerbated by COVID-19.
CARE India along with MARS is working on Solutions for Sustainable Development to support 4,755 women to overcome these challenges which improves their overall quality of life. Within this project, we are reaching to a large farmer base, primarily women who are part of 403 Self Help Groups ( SHG) with limited interventions that target smaller participant groups, who are given intensive support under key thematic areas.
